Aurion wins City of Joondalup tender for HR System

  • 06 September, 2006 12:12

<p>The expanding City of Joondalup, a 20-minute commute from Perth’s CBD, has chosen Aurion’s Human Resources and Payroll solution to accommodate present and future needs.</p>
<p>The City is fast becoming Western Australia’s second major CBD. With a young population of 160,000 people in 22 thriving suburbs (38% of the population is under 25), Joondalup is the second largest local government authority in WA, and the capital of Perth’s booming northern region.</p>
<p>With a workforce of about 500 indoor and outdoor staff, the City of Joondalup considered its previous Payroll system unsatisfactory in core functionality. HR staff were required to expend significant amounts of extra effort in monitoring, reviewing and correcting the system’s information.</p>
<p>“Joondalup was looking for a system that addressed shortcomings of the previous system as well as value adding for the organisation by enabling further process improvement,” said CEO Garry Hunt.</p>
<p>Aurion provided a competitive tender that gave the City confidence in the company’s ability to deliver a proven product with appropriate supporting services.</p>
<p>“Joondalup felt comfortable that Aurion would be able to develop and grow the product to meet the ongoing future needs of HR and Payroll services for the City of Joondalup, ” Mr Hunt said.</p>
<p>On a technical level, Aurion met virtually all essential and desirable functional requirements, has a clean and user-friendly user interface and is proving easy to use.</p>
<p>Aurion’s National Sales Manager, Paul MacRae, said: "Aurion has seen significant growth in the local Government sector over the past year. We look after 35 Local Councils and have formed a Special Interest Group to focus on specific developments that will fit their real needs into the future. Other significant recent wins include Redlands City Council and City of Port Phillip."</p>
<p>The City of Joondalup prides itself on preserving its clean natural bush, wetlands and pristine coastal environment, much of which is a marine park.</p>
<p>Joondalup is a new city and it is still growing and developing a character all of its own -- and is home to several universities and tertiary institutions. Edith Cowan University has made a strategic decision to make Joondalup its main campus, with close to 20,000 students eventually to be based at this campus. Students come from all over the world to study here, many of them from China with which the university and the City are forming special links through the City of Jinan.</p>
